Yes - you can use MirrorView/CE or RecoverPoint/CE if you have a CLARiiON or VNX array to create a stretched cluster but there are distance limitations and you need good WAN bandwidth.

You could also use VPLEX to stretch the cluster over much greater distances. Distance and bandwidth has to be taken into account here too.
